Au programme

Happy to collect you from Baldock Station; back at our cottage we can provide boots/jackets. Over a welcoming drink and a snack (arrive hungry please!) you can tell us your riding experience; we pay serious attention to your expectations as we aim to provide each rider with the ideal equine partner for your day with us.
Having signed a disclaimer and had a hat fitted you’ll meet your horse and bond with him/her using synchronised breathing, grooming and carrots! We normally divide the riding (bridleways /country lanes) into two sessions of about 45/50 min divided by home made lunch or supper with wine but we might keep you up for a 1.5hrs non-stop and eat afterwards, depending on weather and level of fitness.
We can go as slowly as you like, you won’t be pushed out of your comfort zone! Forgive us in advance for putting the horses’ happiness a very close second to your safety :-).
If you weigh above 80kg/have children below 12 please get in touch before booking.
We hope you'll enjoy this form of riding which focuses on voice commands (no kicking or pulling) thus insuring your horse enjoys it as much as you do ;-).
We also offer an introduction to Mindful Riding which tends to work well for intermediates who’ve come with novice partners. Or a longer session incorporating a pub stop. Please ask if you’d like something tailor made, or a different time, we are flexible :-).

This experience involves learning how to ride a horse using your voice (no kicking or pulling)!. We’ve spent the last 30 years training horses, riding very long distances all over the world and teaching nervous beginners. I’m a qualified riding instructor, we both love yoga which we use within our riding. We are saddened by the normal way people are taught to ride - horses are not machines! Maximum 3 riders per session so NO large groups where everyone just follows the lead horse. We limit the experience to just eight people per week so that the horses keep enjoying it! We run a very ethical yard - the horses (mostly arabs) are unshod, living outside in a herd. We love cooking and make bread daily; Richard grows all our vegetables, our hens provide the eggs so lunch means minimum food miles. Guest cottage available for total immersion!

Destinations

We take you on a personal adventure to horsemanship - which can be very different from just riding. We teach you to experience the world from the horses’ point of view. But we’re happy to point out badger setts, fox holes, local fauna and the jackdaw tree. It should be a unique experience on gentle, sensitive horses who enjoy going out. Companionable silence is also an option if preferred - we want you to have the best, relaxed time possible

This has been a truly magical experience! Richard and Nicky are really lovely people, very easy to communicate with, kind and thoughtful of our needs and especially of the animals. This was our first experience with horse riding, and it’s been great to learn how to ride without stressing the horses and how to really tune in with their pace. The lunch was amazing, too, everything handmade and homegrown! We will definitely go and visit Nicky and Richard again.

Thank you Nicky and Rich. We had a great experience at your lovely home. You gave clear instructions on how to handle the horses and were great hosts. Only took 20 min away from London, your property is well maintained and was very fun to explore. Thank you so much for both for the food and hosting, we had a fantastic time!

Oh my.. had the most magical experience with Nicky and Richard. They’re the friendliest people and superb hosts. Lunch was delicious and the laughs were abundant. The riding was so relaxing and enjoyable with the horses being super chilled and a pleasure to ride. Carrots for kisses with my horse Siroco, pure bliss. Can’t wait to go again!

My partner loves horses, great food and interesting people, so she had fantastic time. I only love great food and interesting people, was anxious about riding horse and even if a concept of humans riding an animal - I mean, why? My fear went away before I've even seen a horse. Then, both Nicky's and Richard's knowledge, personalities, clear bond (full of love!) with horses and undeniably thoughtful and effective methodology, made me actually enjoy being carried by a horse, developing some bond and working with it, to make the stroll comfortable and pleasant for the rider and the horse. There's been no dull moment, I've learned, I've laughed, I've enjoyed something I didn't though I will and I've been fed delightfully well with both homemade food from fresh produce and their stories. Left feeling grateful. Give them love.

From the start of the experience, Nicky and Richard went the extra mile to make us feel like home and enjoy the rides. Being novices, my partner and I were a bit tensed at the beginning but Nicky and Richard were very patient and with a few exercices they helped us get the right riding position and become more confident. It's quite a physical activity but within an hour we had managed to fully relax and even trot while enjoying the beautiful surroundings! The meditation exercice was excellent - we highly recommend it. Dinner was fully homemade and delicious - we sincerely appreciate all your efforts and care in selecting ingredients and dishes. Location, hospitality, animals, riding experience, food - everything was brilliant! My partner couldn't have dreamt of a better birthday gift. Thank you for a lovely evening!
